The Ama-Zing Pilanesberg Safari with Willie and Dup was all we could have asked for with a one-day safari near Johannesburg. We had a group of nine who were traveling in South Africa for school, and only had one free day to experience a safari. Willie and Dup picked us up in two comfortable Range Rovers at 4 a.m. and we were at the park by 6 a.m. Over the course of the day we were able to see two of the big five – elephant and rhino – but in addition we saw monkeys, hippo, zebras, blue wildebeest, kudu, impala, steenbok, klipspringer, warthog and more! Willie and Dup were both very knowledgeable and able to find the best places to spot animals. They also made sure our trip was comfortable, with blankets in the morning, extra binoculars and a yummy lunch in the park. I would highly recommend any trip with Ama-Zing Safari!!

A great PRIVATE safari - only you and the guide in a 4x4 - not a cramped minibus and they even picked us up from Potchefstroom. We had Oom Dup who was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Saw many animals up close including being chased by elephants as well as rhino, giraffes, baboons etc! Would definitely recommend over the group safaris.

Had an amazing one day safari with Paddy. His knowledge of the park and its wildlife was truly impressive. After an early start we arrived at the park a bit before 9am and toured it from West to East taking in many great animal sightings.

I had a great one day safari with Willie. He picked me up right on time early in the morning and we had a nice drive to the park. It is approx. 2,5 - 3 hours drive from Johannesburg. The company does tours in land rovers, so you seat high up and it is easier to spot the animals. Willie was a great company and is very knowledgeable about the animals - fun facts as well :) We saw lots of animals. We got lucky especially with the rhinos (saw six of them - one right next to the car), giraffe, impala, zebras. In the middle of the ride we stopped at a cafe for lunch. There is a watering hole there, which was visited by zebras and one giraffe at the time. We left the park at around 3 pm to return back to Johannesburg before dark. The price for the private individual safari was very good. I checked out a lot of operators and Ama-Zing offered a very competitive rate. It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely consider Ama-Zing on my next trip!

Hi Elena
Thank you very much for your review and thanks again for Choosing Ama-Zing African Safaris.
It was a very nice day in Pilanesberg and I am really glad you enjoyed it. I am also glad to hear you plan on coming back. I hope next time you will have more time to do a Safari for a few days. Then maybe we will see more of the Big 5
Regards
Willie

After much research We organised this 4 day trip to kruger national park with amazing safaris. We definitely made the right choice and thoroughly enjoyed our camping experience as well as the safaris themselves. Dup and Marina were fabulous hosts, the food was incredible and we really don't have a bad word to say about the whole trip. We were lucky enough to see 4/5 of the big 5 including the very rare and endangered black rhino. On top of this we saw way more animals than ever expected including v close encounter with a pack of hyenas, hippos, giraffe to name a few.

Really can't rate our experience with amazing safaris enough and would recommend it to anybody.
